Moved
Moved from Spider Wasps. This wasp was confusing at first because its posterior tibiae seem to be serrate, but now I think it's just a series of bristles. The fascicle of bristles on the mentum are also clearly visible in this shot. The single, large maculae on the anterior wings (i.e. lacking a mark across the basal vein) and the evenly curved posterior edge of the marginal cell identifies this as D. papago.
